    I'm getting very little to no spark on plug sometimes any suggestions I know magnet and magneto work cause when I hold on the the black and blue wires hanging out of the engine and push it is get a shock so I'm thinking it might be cdi

    spark at cranking speeds is very weak on all of these - if you can't see any spark at the plug at all, then plug may be bad

    I wouldn't suggest running it with wrong plug, but to look for spark, you could try any plug you have handy just for a spark test.

    It was clutch it wasn't quite grabbing tight enough to I went in turn that flat spindal that's held in with the little screw I turned it two notches tighter and she fired right up multiple times after that good strong spark too now
